Himalaya has recently entered the mens grooming segment with the launch of Intense Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash.I gave the sample I received to my BF before two-three weeks and he has been using it from that day and is about to finish the tube.I was really skeptical about posting this review on our girly blog but then the girls reading this blog can get a feedback of this product and recommend it to your guys.
When I asked him to give a proper detailed feedback about the product for me to jot down the review, all he said is “Nice”.I had to pester him like anything to get the opinions about the product and make this review ready.The review follows below.
Himalaya’s Intense Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash is a soap-free, herbal formulation that gently cleanses your face and removes excess oil. It is enriched with Lemon and Indian Willow which helps clear excess oil, impurities and pollutants.It is powered with Active Boost Technology that increases the penetration of actives and helps in rapid action of the herbs.
Indian Willow (Salix Tetrasperma) bark extract is rich in polyphenols which are known to exert skin conditioning and protectant activity. The plant possesses antimicrobial and astringent properties as it is rich in tannins. Indian Willow has been traditionally used to quicken wound healing and treat skin diseases.
Lemon (Citrus Limon) peel extract is a well known astringent. Rich in flavonoids, Lemon exhibits remarkable shrinking and absorbing properties, enabling the fruit to remove excess oil. It also possesses potent antimicrobial and cleansing properties.
Directions for use:
Apply Intense Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash on a moist face and massage. Gently work up a lather using a circular motion. Wash off and pat dry. Use twice daily.
Price: Rs 180 for 100ml
My Take on the Product:
The product comes in a bluish green tube with a transparent flip cap. The cap shuts tightly and the packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
The facewash is in gel form and has a yellowish green tint to it.The facewash lathers well and only a pea sized amount is enough for one use.
The product has a musky aroma and my bf said that he likes the smell. The smell is similar to many typical men’s product available in the market and is pleasant and non bothersome.
The facewash spreads easily and it leaves the skin clear and oil free. It removes dirt,oil and grime effectively.
The facewash is soothing and refreshing and leaves the skin soft,healthy and hydrated.
It does the job of a face wash well.It gives a cooling sensation.
